Mandarin Orange Jello Salad

Total Time
Prep 4 hrs

This is one of the sides that is always served when my family gets together. It also works well as a dessert. The combination may sound strange but it is really good. I sometimes make it somewhat "healthier" by using sugar free and low fat options. Normally I try not to make it with instant pudding but it still tastes great if made with instant pudding. Preparation time includes cooling.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the contents of the jell-o and pudding together in medium bowl.
  2. Add boiling water and stir until everything is dissolved.
  3. Let cool to room temperature.
  4. Fold in thawed whip cream and well drained mandarin oranges.
  5. Refrigerate for several hours before serving.

This was wonderful!!!! It was so rich and creamy. It reminded me of a recipe that I lost 25 years ago. I am so glad I found this to replace it. I'm happy!!! Thanks so much!!!!!
